A NEW group for vegans and vegetarians will be launched tonight.
Worcestershire Vegans and Veggies said it has had so much interest since setting up 15 months ago that it has started creating local branches.
There will be a launch and celebration event for the new Worcester branch at the Firefly, in Lowesmoor, from 7pm until 9pm. Spokesman Ronald Lee said: "We had 300 people who attended the launch of Worcestershire Vegans and Veggies at Worcester's Cafe Bliss in May last year.
“We have staged dozens of events throughout the county that have attracted a huge amount of interest.
"We have decided to set up local branches throughout Worcestershire and three have been formed in Malvern, Vale of Evesham and Wyre Forest.
"Anyone who is interested in a humane diet and compassionate living is welcome to attend.”
During the meeting, the group will discuss plans for future events and there will be a celebration at the bar afterwards, when free vegan snacks will be provided.
